Subject: Perfect show start to finish!
I've listened to this show about 50 times, and finally feel ready to share. I'm glad to see that everyone agrees that this was a particularly great show. My buddy and I got to the lot early, got inside early and got on the lawn/metal floor before I knew it. 6:00 start meant that the sun was shining on us the whole first set, which was all Jerry tunes except Minglewood, and yes Doin' that Rag went super cosmic at the end. Set II is a wonderful blur, the energy was so palpable. I'm still making discoveries every time I listen to that Other One. Slipknot! threw us all off the trail, and then the way they subtly slipped in through the back door reminds me of what the Dead did in '72, wandering in and out of the central theme with the lyrics being an afterthought. Fire makes you realize that this band can play anything at anytime so toss your expectations out the window. Sublime! Eleven starts with a Coltranesque jam before blossoming. Playin' was another deep excursion, and Ripple was perfect, apparently not on the setlist since the encore read TBD. I saw these guys in Feb. and since then JK has grown into the band leader, and Bobby's playing is the best it's been in years. Sorry Ratdog fans but it's true. Here's to many happy Furthur returns!

Really nice show. It's jammin' good stuff. Great recording. Wish I could have been there. Saw RatDog in 2007 in Lowell and that too was a great concert. Something about the town brings out fine family music.

Subject: Very Nice
At this point, this recording seems to be the lot for this show.

I was in attendance. Doin that Rag is killer and really love China Cat. Could have used the Rider transition jam, but will let it slide this once. ;-)

Subject: The Moths !!
Anyone else notice all the Moths on the stage. Great show. Alot of energy from the band at least from where I was(10 feet from the stage). Killer Sugaree. A really beautiful day and a memorable venue. Sorry Christian could not make the show. We missed you buddy. JA

Subject: Furthur we go
Been going to Dead shows since the late '60's so that gives you some idea of how old Carol and I might be. We get to Lowell early, avoiding all problems that arise from late arrivals. Got in early and went right to the front of the stage. Once there some beautiful young people gave my wife Carol their spot, center stage, directly in front, hanging off the security fence. Wow! What an experience. Thank you whoever you were. Those first notes from John's guitar brought tears to my eyes, not for the past for the hope of a long and bright future for this band.

Subject: Good Times!!!
I attended this show and I have to agree with the other reviews. The atmosphere inside and outside the venue were both fantastic. Yeah, traffic was a bit tough getting in and it was compounded by having to battle rush hour traffic due to the 6pm start time. We can blame the local noise ordinance for that inconvenience.

As for the music, i thought it was top notch. It's great to see the band mixing up the song sequences and even adding in some new original music. Some highlights for me in the first set were Doin That Rag and a rocking Sugaree to close out set. The entire second set was a jam fest, but the closing sequence of So Many Roads>Playin>Rider was especially tight. I've listened to the first half of set 1 and the recording quality is excellent.

Overall it was a great experience that has motivated me to head to Cali for my first West Coast show at Santa Barbara in September.

Thanks to the band for the Music and a special thanks to the tapers for keeping us all in the loop!! Peace

Subject: THEY'RE BACK!
What's been said already holds true for me too. I decided the morning of the show to get tickets. I brought my wife and 2 year old. This was my first show since the Other Ones with Rusted Root at Shoreline. My wife had never before been to a "Dead" show, but she likes the music (years of inundation). The traffic was bad near the stadium, the lines were long, We got in a few minutes into Half Step. The music was on fire and LOUD. The weather was great. The most important aspect for me was the community. Seeing all my brothers & sisters, wearing smiles and many a little older, greyer and with little ones. During the 2nd set, a kind neighbor gave my son and some nearby little girls near us a bunch of glow ring bracelets. My son proceeded to give his to the girls, one by one. The last one, he grabbed my hand to walk down the steps as their backs were turned. A few minutes later, the girls came back with a necklace they had made from the bracelets (The Unbroken Chain) and put around his neck and said to me "We made this for him, he can keep it." My eyes welled up with tears and they did again when I wrote this. I enjoyed this show so much that we're planning a trip to Denver to visit some friends, and see the Friday show at Red Rocks (never been and can't wait). THANK YOU FURTHUR, THANK YOU FAMILY!

Subject: thank you for this music!
I was at this show and had a blast. The will call line though was seriously understaffed causing us to hear the first half of set one outside waiting in line. It was a perfect night for an outdoor venue.

Just wanted to say thanks to the band and the tapers, fantastic job by all.

I can sum it up like this. I brought one of my friends who has not seen Furthur before and by the second set all he could say was "I can't believe this is happening right now..." :-)

Subject: Brutal traffic, Cool Venue, Thanks Bobby and Phil!
Thanks goodness for Internet Archive. First set sounds great. My wife and I made our way up to this show after work and the traffic was brutal!! As we finally made it into ear shot of the venue, we could hear the band on stage, nothing like a hard 6:00 start! Needless to say, we missed the whole first set and needed to bail early second set to beat the traffic out and get home to our newborn. I'll always make an effort to see Bobby and Phil, even if the experience is less than stellar. But it sure is great to have access to all these shows!! Not fade away!!!
Reviewer: bestbandofalltime - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - July 4, 2010
Subject: A great Wednesday evening
I've seen most every post-Jerry incarnation of the band, and after my last show felt the magic had left; that they were a glorified cover band. I decided last minute to head to this show with my friends and that was the best musical decision I've made in years.

Parking took forever to navigate and tons of nitrous hippy crack balloons everywhere. Get inside and the ball field is closed off--very weird venue. They had these metal platforms on the base paths where people could dance. We get up to the 5th row and were treated to such a high energy night of tunes--both the audience and the band were vibrating together. Phil looking out with a smile, fingers still so mobile, and Bobby giving us some great rhythms.

Great show, great set list, some flubs here and there in transitions, but overall, one of the better concerts by any bands I've seen in years. It's been said before, but I'd say this lineup is better than most 90s dead, so definitely catch them. Good recording quality that I'm thankful to have.

Subject: Great Recording... Great Show!!
The sound quality of this recorded Furthur live show at LeLacheur Park in Lowell Mass is OUTSTANDING

I attended this show and I must say I was a bit skeptical prior to arriving wondering what it would be like w/out Jerry. Well that thought was VERY shortly dismissed when they started to play.

I was floored and SO HAPPY... because it was just how I remember a Grateful Dead should be.

Bob and Phil thank you so much for continuing on and enduring.
